Linda Stacey, owner of Careworks, does a great job matching people with childcare providers. There is a fee, but it seemed very reasonable in light of the amount of work she puts into it. I couldn't imagine doing the background checks, sorting through candidates, assessing termperament and skills, researching the proper and legal ways to compensate people, etc., that Careworks did for us. They made the process of getting a nanny much easier. I felt confident in our choice because of all of the work that Careworks did to help.
